July 4th - Ventura Street Fair

California Music Fest is the celebration of the California Culture: Music, Surf, and Art. It takes place Independence weekend in the beautiful city by the sea Ventura, CA in conjunction with the already established and very popular Ventura Street Fair.

Last years street fair featured a massive turn out of over 45,000 people. This year with the City of Ventura’s inclusion of the California Music Fest, over 150 bands will be featured as well plus a surf contest and visual artists from all over the country. The city is expecting an even larger attendance for 2009.

“We are excited to be partnering with the California Music Fest. With the combination of the 4th of July Street Fair and the California Music Fest events, downtown Ventura will definitely be the happening place on the 4th of July weekend.”
- Michelle Godoy, Cultural Affairs and Special Events Coordinator

California Music Fest will be booking talent from all over the country on the outdoor stage located in Ventura’s Entertainment District’s downtown park, as well as 15 of the downtown’s unique venues to showcase emerging indie and established artists both in music and the arts in downtown Ventura. The music will run non-stop from 12 PM - 2 AM for those two days.

In addition, there will be a surf competition running in the early morning to afternoon at Ventura Beach which is only 3 blocks from the stage and venues. Low brow, musician and surf art will be displayed throughout the event.

We look forward to seeing you at this years California Music Fest!
